High end preamp with passthrough
I just installed a Purepower 1050 in my system. It improved my Denon 3808 to the point that I'm perfectly content with audio of my home theater for movies. I was considering the new Denon preamp to improve 2 channel capabilities.
For $7000, however, I can get one heck of a standalone 2 channel preamp. Many high end preamps are starting to come out with a home theater "bypass". I also have several friends that use an analog input of the preamp, setting the volume level to the same point every time when listening to movies. A preamp designed with the passthrough option is the obvious choice.
Anyone doing this in their setup?
